I took this along the Pacific Coast Highway in California. It was the beginning of an all-night drive along one of the country's most scenic highways. I didn't intend to drive that far, it just kind of happened that way. One thing led to another and I just kept driving late into the night.
The area is so scenic that if you are a photographer you'll want to stop a lot. I had a morning flight the next day so rather than sleep, I grabbed a Red Bull and headed down the highway. I ended up a couple hundred miles south before turning around. Arriving at my hotel around six I had just enough time to freshen up and head to the airport.
Even at night there was a lot to see; stars overhead, the beacon from a lighthouse, and the moonlit cliffs of the pacific range as it falls into the ocean. The trip wasn't planned, but sometimes the best things in life are experienced when you just go with the flow.
